Reids Farm (TDC)

This reserve is part of the Waikato River corridor located opposite the Patuiwi block and a narrow strip of land managed by DOC and used for the Huka Falls walkway. Parts of this reserve are used for freedom camping and access to the Waikato River. There is considerable potential to improve the vegetation which at present is dominated by wilding pines, willows and pest plants. This would also serve to open up the access into parts of the reserve that are currently inaccessible.
